Popsicle Fruit Twister
While I wish that I could pack these natural sweet treats into the kids lunch boxes, I’ll happily settle with just keeping our freezer stocked full of them when I can.
Not only are they gluten free, but they’re a great way to use fruit and fruit juice in a delicious way that provides refreshingly real flavors. Forget about buying popsicles at the store that are loaded with high fructose corn syrup, artificial colors or flavors, and other GMO ingredients.

Once you have the fruit filled in the popscile molds, it will take 6-8 hours for the popsicles to freeze completely all the way.

Add the frozen fruit, and all the ingredients into a blender or food processor. Blend until everything is mixed well. The coloring should turn a dark red or purple.
2. Add to the popsicle molds
Once the mixture is blended, pour it into the molds. You can gently press it down into the molds using the back of a spoon and then scrape off any excess so that it’s flat.
Add popsicle sticks into the mixture.
Put the popsicle molds in the freezer for up to 8 hours.
Natural Fruit Popsicles
Not only do these popsicles made with real fruit taste amazing, but they’re a good source of vitamin C as well.
Can I use dried fruit to make popsicles?
I don’t recommend using anything other than fresh fruit, or frozen fruit, so that the fruits blend well and chop up well with the blender.
Dried fruit isn’t going to chop up completely, and will little little bits of fruit in the popsicles. Of course, if that is what you are going for texture-wise, then adding that might be a good idea.
Homemade Fruit Bars
Fruit bar popsicles are one snack recipe that you can make for birthday parties, sleepovers, or just have on hand for hangouts with the kids.
Can I add fruit juice to this popsicle recipe?
You do have to be careful not to add too much juice to the popsicle mixture, but a little bit can be a great way to add citrus flavor and more vitamins. Adding a tad bit of orange juice to the blender is a good idea! Pineapple juice can be a great addition as well.
What can you add to fruit popsicles
Since this fruit bar popsicle recipe is really quite versatile, you can easily change or add new ingredients. One of my other favorite combinations is to add some frozen or fresh banana and chocolate chips to the mixture – making it a sweet and creamy treat.
